Great holmertz 2021-10-20 6:48

Hello Bev,
Bright tractors and bright clothes, perfect for a photo rally. I also like how you cropped this so tightly into a bookmark shape. But what kind of a rally is this where nobody is trying to overtake the others? ;-) The 'no hands' WS made me smile. Looking at the clean tyres I realize these tractors probably don't spend much time on muddy fields.
Kind regards,
Gert

Default To PaulVDV: more or less shabby?

Thank you Paul,
I had of course seen the photos you posted earlier, but thanks for reminding me. It certainly looked very different at night, with all those colours, even more kitschy than I found the mausoleum in daylight. But I see from your WS that the entrance gate looked extremely much nicer than in my WS2. It was definitely more shabby in 1988.

Whether the long walkway has been restored and elevated is an open question. I must have been there during low tide, so I thought the entire road would be fully flooded at high tide. It's usually written everywhere that the sanctuary can only be reached at low tide. But maybe that is only if you are afraid of getting a bit wet. There are films on the net showing people walking happily through great splashes of water at high tide.

Photos on the net taken from the sides, or from high above, seem to show the road being fairly high above the water at high tide, but those were taken on very calm days.

Best regards,
Gert
